El Cuervo y la Zorra
(Ediciones A. Saldaña, 1999)
"Once again, things come together from different times and places. In Salamanca in 1986, I found a simple pop-up from a publisher I did not know. Sixteen years later I found a French die-cut presentation of LM done by ...
La Liebre y la Tortuga
(Ediciones Boga, 1966)
There are red and black two-color illustrations in this twelve-page booklet. I cannot find much more to say about it!
The Hare and the Tortoise
(Golden Press, 1950)
The delightful story of Prudence and Flash. Much is added: the names, a provocation, character descriptions, fans on both sides, a description of the night before, the goal, and some activities along the way. Apparently ...
Souris des Villes, Souris des Champs
See my comments on the original English edition in 1994 under the title Town Mouse, Country Mouse. How nice to find a book I have thoroughly enjoyed now in a different language! The book is still wonderfully lavish.
Androcles and the Lion
(Penguin Books, 1962)
Here is something different: facing pages present the regular text on the right and a text in Shaw's original alphabet on the left! Somebody had or left some money for this (worthwhile?) project, and this copy is a free ...
The Lion and the Mouse
The story is nicely stretched out, e.g., with Midgy the mouse startled by Lionel the lion's first roar--so that she can recognize it later in the story. Pleasing, expressive kids' art.
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse
A typical small kids' book version. It concentrates nicely on the city mouse's upturned nose at one kind of food after another. And then there is a succession of intruders: the cook, some dogs, and the cat. Nice ...
A Bundle of Sticks
(Albert Whitman & Company, 1962)
Original copyright was apparently 1962. Once again Katherine Evans uses a crayon-like style, alternating black-and-white and colored spreads. Here the fable is set in a Persian village, where a rugmaker has three sons. ...
The Maid and Her Pail of Milk
(E.M. Hale, 1967)
Crayon drawings. The book is not well preserved. An example of a whole book given to what is normally a short fable. The series of purchases is foreshortened to milk, eggs, chickens, and clothes. Somehow the milkmaid ...
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse 476
The unusual paper--indeed cloth-like--is the big feature of this nice large book. My first copy with the brown binding is in good condition. Multiple threats occur in the city house: from the cook, a trap, the cat, the ...
